Growing up as an orphan, Yuki Sakurai questions his reason for living and ability to see a person's painful memory by simply touching them. After receiving anonymous notes telling him to die, Yuki is unable to shake off the nagging feeling forming inside of him. Unbeknownst to him, he is being watched, both by people who want to harm him and those who want to protect him.

One foggy night, Yuki's life is saved by a beautiful man with silver eyes and jet black hair—a man he has never met before yet seems familiar. With the arrival of this mysterious stranger, Yuki's forgotten past has been awakened and the purpose of his existence has appeared before him.

Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru tells the story of a teenage boy as he discovers who he is and where he comes from—all while making friends, experiencing betrayal, and slowly piecing together the puzzle of his past.

I was surprised at how much I actually liked this anime. I planned on watching it for the past ten years (no, really) and now that I finally did it I wonder why it took me so long. I am certain that I would have liked it even more if I would have watched it ten years ago.

The story isn't what I'd describe as amazing, but there is a pretty good plot that keeps you interested. I wasn't expecting much in terms of plot so I was taken by surprise. There are a few things that could have been polished a little, but overall ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime is disappointing on so many levels, especially because it has SO MUCH POTENTIAL. But it falls flat on almost all accounts.

All. Over. The. Place.
Starting from the random names and powers that pop up without explanation and order. The story starts like ten sub-stories and finishes none of them. I understand that this is based on a manga that is supposedly a little better but in that case it would have been more favorable to go with just one story arc (that is Kanata vs. Yuki and co.) and finish it properly.
What we are left with is a confusing, boring and anti-climatic ...

Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru (UraBoku from now on) is a great example of how visuals and sound aren't enough to make a series enjoyable to watch.

1) for a 2010 anime, the animation is very clean although inconsistent at times;
2) it took me a while to ignore how every character has a sharp chin, almost like they could stab someone with it
3) ugliest hands I've ever seen in any anime and I've been watching anime for over 16 years now!
4) unappealing color palette
